It's all in the Stars


Over at this weeks PanPastelUk challenge they are asking to see 'stars'.  So I decided to have another play with my PaperArtsy paints and stamps and incorporated some of the fab technqiues the guest designers have been show casing over on the PaperArtsy blog.  I absolutely love this stamp from the LP #5 plate.  I used a #8 tag.


For this one I used a #10 tag which is much, much bigger but the image is huge!!  It's from the LP #10 plate.  

I can't begin to tell you how many colours of fresco paint I used to create the background.  I basically just kept layering them up until I got what I liked, then I sanded back.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
